No Title [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 19 January 1877

We; Argu., published an the 3rd inst. an extract from the Auckland South.ern Cron, which purported to describe the cruelties inflicted upon some of the Communist convicts at Noumea by the French oflicials there. In a letter ad. dres ed to the Sydney .Morning Ilerald of :the 12th inst., Mr. Allan Hugban writes as follows in contradiction of the startling atory:-'?:By a rare chance, I,s n lnglish. msas and a civilian, happened to be on board of ,the French transport Seudre at the time of the chaoe and capture of the la convicts who were trying to escape in the steam launch Boulari.

No Title [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 19 January 1877

The Julia Percy, a., being unable to get firemen and sailurs, is still lyiog as anchor off Willhamstown. The three firemen who left bet at the Queen's Wharf on Saturday had not signed the articles, and the others who had came ashore yesterday morning. The police flag was hoisted for them, but was soon afterwards lotnled down. The idea is that the captain wanted to frighten the men into guiua back to the ship. The Otway, a., if what can be gathered is correct, sailed on Friday without deck hands, beyond the officers. At any rate it is a fact that when she arrived at the wharf at an early hour yesterday morn ing her deck crew consisted of some eight or ten men, who were picked up at Waer nambool and Portland. and shipped under the lasters and Servants Act at ten shillings a-day to Melbourne and back. The state ot affairs was explained to them by the sailors here, and they ll1 knocked off working at the cargo after breakfast time. At one o'clock an am prrmptu meeting of snamen was held...

The men se very firm, and are receiving assiatance tom the Seamen'" Union, whilst the comrn ,vny seem determined to carry their -point. The men on stnke appear to have 1 some ground for the course they have taken. They state that when the busy srcaon came nn the Julia Percy (s.) and Otway (a.) were laid on to run two trips p r week between Melbourne and Port land and Melbourne and Belfast respec tivrely, perhaps calling at Wnrronambool on the way back. Doring the passage the men had always plenty to do in sorting cargo and keepion decks clean, &e. The passage is so short th.t in the run to Port land one watch would only get four hours below, and the other watch eight hours, and soon after arrival all hands would bare to turn to to oischarge and take in cargo.

The Guardian. WITH WHICH IS INCORPORATED THE "PORTLAND EXPRESS." To Protect our Rights—Not to Infringe upon those of Others. FRIDAY, JANUARY 19, 1877. FREE TRADE IN NEW SOUTH WALES. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 19 January 1877

w:lrr i ? " 5H00 I OOPuTEP THE os0LAND EXPRES." To Protect our Rights - Not to Infringe upon, those of Others.' FRIDAY, JANIVARY 19, 1877. FREE TRADE. IN NEW SOUTI "r, . WALES. The Melbourne Argus, and other Victorian journals are never tired of dinning in our ears, the amazing ad vantages of Free Trade in New South Wales. The following which we ex tract from the Sydney Mail of the 13th inst., will show where the revenue comes from. It will be seen from the extract that Free Trade. has nothing to do with the great financial position of the colony. The sale of the Crown lands there is spent in governing the country; but when this source of revenue fails, as it will in time, Sydney like Victoria and all other countries must try back on tax ation to meet the annual outlay. The Mail says: "The comparative statement of the revenue and receipts on naccount of the Con solidated IRevenue Fund which was pub. lished in the Gazette on Tuesday furnishes particulars of the land revenue for t he ...

(From the British Medical Journal.) [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 19 January 1877

(BHrom.the British Vedical Journal-) SThe whole question is a mot important boe,. as weil as being a suhject likely to be taken. up by thbe efdierance party. It is not always easyto.diacriminate betwixt the absulote necessity for alcohol in some cases and the mere craving for it. That alcohol in not a-bsolutely essential to snccensful treatment, is borne out by the experience of tie Wrexham Workbouse: still it Is not posnlble to state dogmatically that the 'alcoholic tratment of disease in paupers muas be abandoned. It is easy enouob so decide upon the merits of 'p?ui-po.tices," much in vogue in a cer aiworkhoupe in the ecikbbourhood of Lndbo ; the gin possibly goes in part to t]i attendanis, and the potltices to the patients. The great difficulty before the diferent boards -of guardiane is to keep cleau of ths abuse of alcohol by the patiants, and yet not to cripple their medical officers in tbair management of tasea. It is bt right that in this matter great discretion be ezercised...

AS. instncing the evils which are if inflicted by this compulsory piety I may - mention that a little girl in Carlton was refifsed a drop of brandy wherewith to. animate the last moments of her dying Sfatlher on the ground that vigorous. d legislation prevented tihe publican from ' selling. Tihe kind-hearted boniface, how ever, presented the family a few minutes. afterwards with a half bottle of the in e piriting liquid as an act not of busiesa . Sbut of friendly charity.

LORD MACULAY'S BOYWOOD. [Newspaper Article] — Portland Guardian — 19 January 1877

tORDi MACULAY'M BOYHOOD. (From Blacktood's.) Macaulay was a prodigy from the be ginning of his days: not, however, a little monster, like John Stuart Mill, but a quaint little piece of precocity always taony in his solemnity, He read from the timebhe was three years old, "lying on the rog before the fire, with a piece of Biread and butter in his bhand," an0 aCOm paniment which probably absorbed any harm there might be in so much liters t'?re. At roars years old he offered to Mir. Hannah More, what was called " a glues of old spirits," on the perfectly natural and sstisfactory plea that - Robin son Crouop often had some." WVhen s?ce one spilt hot coffee over his white trousers, he "answered, after a time, to in4ulrie, " Thank you, madam, the agony Is abated." When his maid removed the Saster:shells which marked out his little gardee, ha pronounced, with startling but delighiful adherence to his Old Testament training, "Corsed be Sally; for it is written, Corsned is he that removeth h...
